    Don Mueng Airport vs Suvarnabhumi??

    I've flown in and out of DM quite a few times. If you arrive in the evening (9 PM onwards) you can often get through customs there super quick. However, during the day Chinese tourist planes seem to land in big numbers and it can be slow. Agree with the earlier tip about going up to Departures to grab a taxi. At night the taxi ride into Sukhimvit is super quick. 20 minutes to Nana. During the day it's one hour or more. However, it's true that if you are going straight to Pattaya rather than downtown Bangkok it will add another hour to your trip. If you want to catch a bus to Pattaya from DM airport then you can get the A1/2 bus to Mo Chit, then a very short taxi ride to the Northern Bus Terminal where there are regular buses leaving for Pattaya.

    Normal Price Brekky

    Pooks cafe in Buakhow opposite Tree Town has an excellent English breakfast and great coffee. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  3. I usually grab a motorcycle taxi straight from that Nth Pattaya Bus Terminal. That way, 10 minutes and 100 baht later I will be right at my hotel in Buakhow. If you have a small suitcase this is the way to go (I do hand luggage only). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My phone plan on the I-phone 8 Plus is expiring shortly so I have a decision to make. Given the extreme price on that new model it might be time for me to give up on Apple and move across to Galaxy 9. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    bali or hong kong or manila

    I’ve been to all of these places on numerous occasions. When in town I fit in some mongering. Here are my thoughts. HK is frightfully expensive for mongering. For example, last year I was offered a ST by a streetwalking LB in Wanchai for HK$2000 (US$250). This seems to be the expectation. If you venture over to Mong Kok then you can find happy ending massages by Chinese ggs for far less HK$500. Most mongering action is online or in the frightfully overpriced girlie bars. Bali has a reasonable scene for mongering and with the weak Indonesian currency, prices are ok. There are some lbs around but not anywhere near as many as you would find in Manila or Thailand. I found some freelancing out of a gay bar in Seminyak called Mixwell. I would suggest starting there. Manila has a great lb scene. Hookups are best done online using Pinaylove. You can have a real gf experience over a number of days in this place. Makati is quite safe at night and there are plenty of freelancers to be found in P. Burgos Street. Prices are reasonable and comparable to Thailand. Angeles City is cheaper but personally I found this place to be pretty dirty with a lot of skanky freelancers who look like they would try to rob you in a heartbeat. Another place in the Philippines with lots of lbs is Cebu. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pattaya going downhill?

    Pattaya going downhill?

    Where will all the ladyboys go? Should the authorities be successful in their puritanical push for a family-friendly holiday resort city, I suspect that it will just revert to a more underground, online hookup model rather than a bar-focused scene. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I do find that if you look out for sales, book well ahead and you are able to fly outside of peak periods then you can find flights with Air Asia that are half the cost of the so-called full service airlines. For example, recently I booked a return flight Melbourne to Bangkok for March next year for A$360. Pretty hard to argue with that. Thai Air would have been twice that. This flight saving covers my accomodation for a week in the LOS. I prefer to spend my money in the bars and on the girls than on the flights but there are no right or wrong answers here - it's a personal preference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I tend to fly budget airlines like Jetstar and Air Asia from Melb. While I agree with Swany that things sometimes go wrong like delays the savings when compared to full service airlines are quite significant and I only do carry on luggage. I can generally get a fare this way for around A$500 return. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Final Leg Help

    I do your trip a lot. I grab a motorcycle taxi at the bus station as like you I also only have hand luggage which is stored by the driver at his feet. Cost is 100 baht to Buakhow. 10 min trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Air Asia tightens baggage restrictions

    I just checked in with Air Asia in Melbourne to fly to Bangkok via KL. I only have carry on. The guy did not even weigh my carry on! Interesting given this thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Air Asia tightens baggage restrictions

    I'm flying AA to Bangkok next Tuesday and am only taking carry on luggage. After seeing this thread I will take extra care to ensure I'm only 7 kg in total. I generally travel light anyway but it's not hard to add up to that figure. Toiletries, laptops, plugs and shoes weigh the most from my experience so will minimise those. I don't mind the crackdown on those who clearly abuse it but I'm not keen on the huge lines that this process creates! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Metered taxis

    Yes my technique to use with the Bangkok taxis is never take one that has been waiting outside of a popular bar area as they will never use the meter. Just walk up the road a bit and flag one down that is going past. Don't get straight in. Open the passenger door and ask him whether he will do a meter. If he saids no then go to the next and generally one in three or four will use the meter. If you have a Thai with you then of course they can negotiate this on your behalf.

    Metered taxis

    Probably not. They never do in Phuket so why would they in Pattaya? Sometimes you can get them reluctantly to put the meter on in Bangkok but you have to negotiate this major concession prior to getting in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
